Ok, well it started with us deciding to go to the less expensive matinee early showing, because it's all about anti capitalism- right?
As we stood in line, we overheard the man at the ticket window say "One ticket for Michael".
We had to laugh-- Moore was now a famous filmmaker & the clerk knew what he was talking about- he was on a first name basis!
I don't want to give away too much about the film, for those who have not seen it yet, but will say this--
Michael Moore's film making style is maturing. No longer does he feel he must narrate the hell out of a topic.
In a documentary, you really want the message to unfold itself.
The other thing he does here is shed light, and gives a subtle-as-a-freight-train message-- that those who are not the ultra wealthy elite have an equal vote, and could band together for change. This is their fear. We who are getting pushed around need to know that.
The only thing missing was a tie in about the health industry.... because the for profit model we have is certainly a prime example of capitalism at it's worst. But yes, he dedicated an entire film to that topic- Sicko.
Once you see the fim, you will know what the term "Dead Peasants" is all about.
Yes, Wall Street is a crime scene, and now we have it on film!
This film made me both laugh out loud AND brought me to tears.
Well done, Michael.
